Shadow | The Dr. Binocs Show | Educational Videos For Kids

Yohooo! There goes Mr. Deer Oh! And there’s Mr. Crow. Hey Mr. Deer, how do you do? I’m good. What about you? Hey there, meet Mr. Deer and Mr. Crow. No, don’t get confused. They are nothing but the shadow of my hands Come, let me tell you more about shadows. Shadow is nothing but the light that cannot pass through an object But hey, you can only see shadows of objects that are visible to eyes. For example: A tree will have a shadow, so will you and I. But not air and water because light can pass through them! You can have multiple shadows. It all depends on the number of light sources. The more the number of lights, the more shadows you will have. Oh, there goes Mr. Deer again. Hey! You gotta see how Mr. Deer changes in size. There’s a reason behind it. When I move the lights away from my hand, the shadow becomes smaller in size. And when I bring the light source near, the shadow becomes large. When you put the light source just over the object, you get the shortest shadow. Woooh! Mr. Deer looks so small now. Hmm, now you know that the size of a shadow depends on the distance between the light source and the object. It’s hard for many to believe that light travels in a straight line. Yes, it’s true! Light cannot bend or turn around that object to light up the area behind it. When there were no clocks, people used to estimate time using the Sun clock. A shadow cast by the Earth on the Moon results in a lunar eclipse, the source of light being the sun. So this is me Zooming Out! Tune in next time for more fun facts!

  1. Thank u Dr.Binocs my brother didn't know about shadows and how the where made and after I showed him he video he really understands it now

  2. I love Dr Binocs shows and now I understood science was fun so I said Dr Binocs shows were amazing but something else is that he is not a legend but a science friend and a BFF

  3. Amazing i love this video and ALl YouTube videos ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  4. He has three fingers but when he does the deer shape he has four fingers shown but no prob it's very fun to learn with him

  5. wonderful explanation!! thank you dr. Binocs. perfect for my lesson about how shadows are formed 🙂

  6. I'm confused. Why is it that what the sun is directly above an abject, that object will not have a shadow. But when we put a light source (for example a torch) above an object, there is still a short shadow?

  7. Look at the deer at 0:25 it is made by using 4 fingers now look at dr Binocs' fingers at 0:36 He Has 3 How Did He Have 4??

  8. I know this is a kid's show, but light CAN bend. Or perhaps more accurately, light can be bent.

    Still, I love these videos and enjoy using them in my kindergarten science classes as a fun way to introduce concepts.

  9. This video is absolutely contradicting. How are you going to say that light travels parallel and can’t be bent around an object yet the last diagram shows light bending around earth… wtf secondly, the sun is way to close in the diagram. The sun is apparently 93,000,000 miles away and because of distance and perspective, the sun would actually seem as large as the moon. This is why we notice the moon covering the sun during the eclipse.

  10. Dr. Binocs, can I use your video as Creative Commons for the Education company I work for?
